Content-Aware Image Sizing

closeThis post was published 12 years 3 months 17 days ago. A number of changes have been made to the site since then, so please contact me if anything is broken or seems wrong.

There is a new video on YouTube that details a new technology, called Content-Aware Image Sizing, that can dynamically resize images by removing one-pixel-wide paths called seams. Images can be stretched using the same technology, where seams are added rather than subtracted. Areas to protect can be defined, and their pixels will not be removed or added to; areas can also be erased with the background automatically reconstructed, though the entire image will have some proportions altered. It’s a very interesting technology.


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
